  • this also happened to me and my dr said it was an infection...i cant remember what he said but he gave me medicine for it because he said a vaginal infection could cause early labor...i would recommend getting checked out.

  • well, i one time made the stupid choice to put on a brand new pair of undies on without washing them, Yeah....bad idea. I was itchy & swelly all day down there. I was fine the next day. You could have come in contact w/ some kind of substance. For instance, my DR. said this can also happen if your laundry is not rinsed good enough. The soap on your underwear can cause skin irritation.

  • i get like that anytime i use anything that smells like baby powder...from pantyliners, tampons, and laundry may have had a reaction...
